Eating Indian -

Its two oclock pm in Washington DC and there is two inches of snow outside my window. I hear Minn is much colder.

I am sipping a simple cardamom tea and wondering what to cook for dinner - something hot and spicy that counteracts the weather.

What are you cooking from your spice cupboard that is warming :laugh:

hola monica!

i'm just a little south of you and thus get your used weather.

we're just starting to snow, but been having a cold

snap last 2 days.

i made some KICK A** bisi-bele-bhaath

(no MTR mix, mom's recipe)

and EVERYONE loved it:

husband fell off his diet wagon with a thud,

and 7 yo dd and 3 yo ds kept saying

"yummy in my tummy" while devouring multiple servings.

served with yogurt and papads.

really sticks to your ribs

(and alas, likely to yr hips)

Nothing Indian!

which made me wonder how often do you cook/eat Indian?

three meals a day? Daily? couple of days weekly?

but back to monica's topic, days like today make me long for Bread Pakoras, Malpoa, masalla chai, jalebis and the like.

edited to add garam garam halwa.

We had a nice spicy dal over scrambled eggs (weird, I know, but we like it) and a salad of shredded carrots with cumin and lime and other nice things.

Peppertrail could you please share your recipe for Aviyal wih me? By private message or publicly if you think others might like it.

CharityCase & Milagai:

The recipe for aviyal is on my web site at http://www.peppertrail.com/php/displayCont...&parent_link=10

It is also on this thread -

Non Indian vegetable- their use in indian kitchens, Lot of curiosity of their kinds

But please reduce the quantity of coconut oil to 1/3 cup from 1/2 cup. It was a typo I missed correcting. Monica is it possible to correct it?

In Chicago the blizzard came and went yesterday. For lunch I made a hearty punjabi meal of sarson da saag (using frozen mustard greens and spinach) with a packaged dal makhani (wasn't too bad!) and corn tortillas (makki di roti). For dinner I made pork vindaloo. I don't usually cook so much but we were housebound all day, so it seemed like a good thing to do .

Suresh & Monica:

I have pav bhaji question. I tasted pav bhaji for the first time in the U.S. Yes, I moved here before pav bhaji reached the south. I wonder if it has really reached Kerala yet :wink: I love the bhaji part. My question is why is such a tasty vegetable dish served on ---bread? Was the original pav something else? something like homemade chapathi type perhaps?
